Characters

Synopsis

SpongeBob is heading to Mrs. Puff's Boating School to try to pass his driving test again, this time with Patrick to encourage him. However, he fails for the 58th time. Patrick then decides to take the test himself and passes with a perfect score, much to SpongeBob's surprise. They go to get Patrick's license, but while his picture is being taken, an announcer comes out to reveal that he is the one millionth person to pass the test and that he has won a brand new hot rod boatmobile. SpongeBob and Patrick drive home in Patrick's new boatmobile while he talks about how fun driving is, much to SpongeBob's disappointment. That night, Patrick is heard working on his boatmobile and comes to SpongeBob's door at 4 AM. SpongeBob tries to get some sleep, but is woken up the next minute by his alarm clock. SpongeBob, now very tired, tries to walk to work, but eventually gets a ride from Patrick, who rubs his license in SpongeBob's face even more. When SpongeBob gets to work, he finds out that Mr. Krabs has chosen him to run the Krusty Krab's drive-thru and meets Patrick and his boat again. At closing time, Patrick drives up, now wearing a racing outfit, claiming that he must keep up his image as an "expert driver". While driving around, Patrick rubs his license in SpongeBob's face even more, even stopping to talk to SpongeBob's parents about it. Patrick then starts driving above the speed limit and runs 3 red lights. SpongeBob finally snaps after Patrick literally rubs his license in SpongeBob's face and tears up Patrick's license. This gets the attention of the police and causes the police to chase after SpongeBob and Patrick, who eventually drive off of a cliff into the Bikini Bottom Jail yard. Patrick is tried, and found guilty of littering. However, SpongeBob takes the blame for Patrick and gets put in prison for 90 days. When SpongeBob is released, he gives Patrick a new license plate for his boatmobile, but Patrick reveals that he threw out the boatmobile because it stopped working when it got to "e". The episode ends with SpongeBob and Patrick pretending to play boats with SpongeBob riding on Patrick.

Cultural References

  • The Announcer for Patrick's new car says "Women will want you. And men will want to be you" This is a quote from Austin Powers.
  • A Police Officer says "Oww, I got me a runner!". This line is from the science fiction movie Logan's Run, made by MGM.
  • Patrick's horn plays the song La Cucaracha.
  • Patrick doesn't get arrested for the crimes he commited in the car until Good Ol' Whatshisname.

Errors

  • Patrick changes color during the close-up near the end.
  • When a close up of Patrick's license comes up, after he tells Mr. and Mrs. SquarePants about it, his glove turns pink.
